Post-Covid infection assessment at RMC

If someone is infected with the coronavirus, they may experience some residual symptoms and complications even after they have recovered.

Post-Covid infection assessment at RMC

The effects of the virus can also negatively impact any chronic underlying diseases, as well as your general sense of well-being. For keen amateur athletes, the question of when to begin doing sports again and with what intensity is also an important issue. In light of the above, attending a post-coronavirus assessment is highly recommended. The RMC medical team is available to provide these examinations for our patients.
